Guz over at T.B.A.G. is kind enough to keep me in the loop of all the bike action going on in the Phoenix valley. This morning he sent over a news article about a local cyclist that fell victim to a hit and run.
“I watched a car come around the corner and after he came around the corner he slowed down,” said Scott Walters. He said he didn’t think much about an oncoming car because the two were on opposite sides of the road.
That is until Scott says the driver of a Silver Kia started heading right for him.
“He steered right towards me and stepped on the gas and kept going,” Scott said. “By the time I figured out he was actually going for me I couldn’t really get out the way so all I could was lean over his hood and lessen the impact.”
I don’t know Scott personally but I have seen him around and we frequent the same watering hole from time to time. If you are in the Phoenix area, keep an eye out for a silver Kia missing a mirror that is obviously being driven by a douchebag. We are all glad you are alright Scott!by
